200 posts!


Yes, I've been doodling again. I'm actually thinking about designs for printing up fabric now and this is a sneak peek at a very crowded doodle of ideas. Anyway, all this can wait because I have something else for you that I hope you really like....

A celebration of 200 posts! It's come around very quickly, hasn't it? I was determined to have a giveaway to say thank you... it was in my mind whilst in London, so there are now two choices of giveaway gifts.

Your first choice is a Cath Kidston pack. It includes:
• London souvenir design hankie
• London souvenir set of brooches and
• a mix & match stationery set featuring Cath Kidston's cowboys and floral designs.


OR, you can choose the Paper pack. This one includes:
• the fabulously crafty Handmade Hello book
(from Hello Lucky blog fame)
• a Paperchase mini sketchbook / notebook and
• 6 Paper Lantern covered pencils.


Just leave a comment with either Cath Kidston pack or Paper pack in the comment box and you'll be in the running. Thank you to all the lovely people who stop by here :) I'll be drawing the winners on Friday 9th October.

Paperpack!
May I just say, just because is sounds really, really corny..... You Doodle Good!

Michelle said...

Congratulations on reaching 200! Hooray!!!

What a generous giveaway, I need a hankie so I vote Cath Kidston.

Gorgeous doodles, love the yellow, it would make lovely fabric.

Kate said...

I love that doodle. I think it would make gorgeous fabric, or maybe even wallpaper. Congrats on the 200!! I would LOVE the paperpack!!

Gina said...

Oh Kylie! I've only just tuned in after almost a week of broken internets... and the doodling you are up to is FANTASTIC. I'm so excited by the thought of you designing for fabric, oh boy oh boy!! I'll be snaffling it up by the yard... I like the yellow one there for your giveaway post, kinda looks to me like Lotta Jansdotter and Kandinsky collided. Tee hee.

OK, enough of that now. 200 posts, phew, now is that on both blogs or just one? Good grief lady you are prolific. If I get a look-in here I think I'd like the Cath Kidston... because I'm both hankie AND brooch obsessed, as you know!

Thea said...

HI Kylie. Congratulations on 200 posts. I love reading your blog, your own work is inspirational and you have a knack for finding other cool designs. If I were to win, I would love the Cath Kidston pack. Blog on!!

Leonie Guld said...

I actually don't mind, I like them both....I'll have whatever the other person doesn't want!!

Mookah said...

Phew! You did that 200 uber quickly?! Congrats to you - also on the doodly side of things. Lovely colour and scribblings. Think I'm umhing and aahing but I'm falling on the side of the fence that is the Cath Kidson. Thanks for the opportunity to play!

Kickcan and Conkers said...

Love your doodle Kylie - really, it'll make wonderful fabric. I'm going to have to start drawing again too, when I get chance, you're inspiring me!
Happy 200th post - I love coming over here.
It's difficult to choose but I'm pretty sure that my Savannah would love the Cath Kidston set, fingers crossed...

Mel said...

Just please keep doodling! And then yes please print it onto fabric please please please!

Oh and loving both giveaway options (aren't you the generous one?) but tipping more towards Cath for me!

Happy 200 posts!

Nicola said...

WOW Congratulations on 200 Kylie!

I LOVE the print so far. It looks as though your brooches have evolved, grown legs and wandered all over the page! Beautiful colours too, very modern.

What a great giveaway, so generous! Both packs are gorgeous but im leaning toward the paper pack. You know i LOVE my paper!

Thanks also for your latest comment, your advice is always very welcome and you'll be pleased to know im already looking on the bright side. Ive been making the most of my "extra" time to get ready for my first ever market stall!

Thanks again

Yes Kylie, please take your doodles further! I see so many talented crafts people out there and I am always wishing they'd take their designs to fabric and clothing. Your beautiful doodles fit that bill!

As for the giveaway...I am soooo torn. I just don't know. Such a hard decision...I'll go the Cath Kidston if I win. Crossing my fingers, toes and eyes...
